Description

Gunga Din takes the 3-bolt line adjacent to and to the right of 5.11 Crack. Thin, technical, near-vertical slab moves will get you through the crux. Try to pinch the occasional rugosity or imperfection in the clean granite if it makes you feel better, but your hands are pretty much worthless on this one except for clipping the bolts. The climbing eases back to about 5.8 after the third bolt - move up and slightly left to the same anchor as for 5.11 Crack. While the difficult moves are well-protected, the 5.8 runout after the third bolt is a bit sporty.

Protection

QDs (3 bolts), plus something for the two-bolt anchor. This can be toproped by climbing one of the easier adjacent climbs such as 5.11 Crack or E.O. Lieback.

My recollection is the first ascent was Paul Piana ~1984 or 1985. Oct 10, 2011
The hands are actually pretty good for a "Sport Slab" ; definatly on the easy side of 5.11but an excellent route that is rarely climbed in a usually crowded area ! Oct 12, 2002
This is a worthy route in every way. I really enjoy this route though I am primarily a crack climber. There are anchor chains at the top, no need to share with 5.11 crack Oct 11, 2002
